Mack Brown Denies Resignation . . .

Other people think Saban's agent will use that to get Alabama to commit to a $7M/yr contract extension which would make him (I believe) the highest paid coach in college football.
Total Teams 72 (57%) 54 (43%)
Bowl Teams 48 (69%) 22 (31%)
Bowl Payout $271.6 M (94%) $16.6 M (6%)
Notice the trend here. The power AQ conferences make up 57% of FBS schools but received 69% of the bowl slots and those slots wil pay them 94% of the bowl cash pie! that is an average for AQ programs of $3.8 MILLION while the Non AQ average share is $307,000. For schools like FAU that is less than 10% of what the AQ Big Boys will split among themselves.
But wait, I forgot to take out the $3.2M the 3 Independent schools going to bowl games get to keep to themselves did'nt I. That reduces the pool for the 48 remaing non AQ programs to $13.4M to split or now only $279,000 each (down to barely 7% now)!
Pretty ugly ain't it and schools like Texas can throw around numbers like $10M a year to one man plus a percent of the TV deal PLUS still having to pay a huge buyout to the outgoing Coach. Amazing how unlevel the playing field is FAU has to deal with!
